Award-winning system controls access to and from blood fridges and checks products against patient details
One of the UK’s-leading private hospital groups has selected a Wirral company to introduce innovative blood-tracking solutions across all 31 of its hospitals.
Nuffield Health has selected MSoft eSolutions to implement its award-winning systems.
Nuffield has asked MSoft to introduce three of its products – Bloodhound, Sample360 and PPID360.
Bloodhound controls access to and from all blood fridges, while a bedside management system allows each barcoded blood unit to be matched with the patient’s barcoded wristband in a matter of seconds.
Sample360 is a powerful phlebotomy sample tracking and management solution, helping to dramatically reduce the number of costly errors in the sample taking process. NHS trusts which have implemented Sample360 have seen sample rejection rates fall from thousands of samples a year to zero.
PPID360 is the latest generation in systems providing positive patient identification in healthcare organisations. The web-based system provides hospitals with the reassurance that patients are receiving the correct treatment and eliminating the chance of mistakes.
The solution integrates seamlessly into the many different and sometime-complex healthcare systems containing patient information.
Matt McAlister, managing director of Bromborough-based, MSoft eSolutions, said: “This is our first contract with the private hospital sector in the UK and means that our technology is now being used in more than 100 NHS and private hospitals.
“Our systems are in demand because they have the capability to enhance patient safety, improve operational efficiencies and significantly reduce the costs facing healthcare providers at a time of enormous financial constraints.”
